That is really very cool. What a fun thing to do! :

More big salads for us tonight: mixed field greens, spinach, and green leaf lettuce topped with orange segments, avocado, pepitas, and a cilantro-lime vinaigrette. The kids will have homemade macaroni and cheese (sauce from the freezer)

We had a zucchini rice gratin and salad. It was the first time I made the gratin and I had my doubts about how it would turn out but it was extremely yummy. I'll definitely make it again, though DH thought it was a little heavy on the garlic. Personally I don't think that's possible, so he may have a point.

That sounds great!

Money's been tight the last few days so I've been challenged to make something out of nothing. I did pretty well actually. One night - stuffed shells with salad, then carne asada burritos, then "roasty chicken" as we call it around here - chicken thighs, potatoes and onions tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted for an hour.

Tonight - chicken and dumplings from leftovers.

Oddly enough, we are having sort of the same thing -- pan-fried tilapia, which I will cut into "sticks" and serve w/homemade mac and cheese for the kids. For the adults, tilapia filets with tricolor couscous, and broccoli for DP, spinach for me. Or maybe I should just serve the mac and cheese for all of us... I have enough and it's already made. Hmm...

I haven't figured it out yet. we have a bunch of grilled chicken I planned to use in a soup but I don't really want soup now. So I made some potato salad, and we have the chicken. I don't know what to do with it though. Probably some other green veggie with it, or a salad.

I gotta say I am beat this week. I've been working in the garden, and running around with the hsers. My creativity is a little off, and I am looking forward to pizza night. : Last night was a small amount of grilled tuna that I sprinkled with lime and cracked pepper & tossed into a salad. I served it with a little leftover sourdough bread, and dh made some cous cous. Tonight is grilled black bean / spinach burritos, w/ a salad, avo slices, salsa and blue tortilla chips.

Tomorrow-- Take out pizza that dh is picking up on his way home from work! And I do not care. White flour be damned! "Hon, make sure you pick up some vino, dammit".

I have the leftover chicken dilemma a lot. In the winter it usually ends up either in chili or some kind of casserole. In the summer I put it on top of salad, or make fajitas. Pretty exciting, huh?

ETA - tonight we had penne with italian sausage and bottled sauce, and salad. I didn't feel very inspired and I'm running low on veggies.

Well we ended up having it on a salad. I made this honey mustard sauce and was just going to use it on the chicken but then I thought it would be good on a salad, and it was!

Tonight is chicken pasta salad (STILL more leftover chicken!).

My sis in law left bro in law last month and hes been crying and etc for weeks now we get him happy and not thinking about it and she pops up and does something again. So we are driving a hr to his house to try to cheer him up and let our girls see him. Probably will just pick up take out of something gross. Emily

Tonight I am doing tostadas with all the fixings -- corn and flour tortillas (fried, yes; hey, it's Friday night! ), seasoned beef, refried beans, chopped jalepeno, shredded lettuce, grated cheese, salsa, guac and sour cream. I expect to eat way too many and feel full and disgusted with myself afterward and oh yeah, prolly have vino too! happy weekend y'all!

Thursday was pizza - we were sorting stuff for our LLL garage sale.

Friday was snack foods - fruit, cheese etc - we had something going on that night.

Saturday was homemade gumbo - delicious!

Sunday was homefries, grilled steaks, fresh mozarella and tomato salad.

Tonight will be a quick chicken stir-fry with whatever veggies arrive in our box today.

I think it'll be modified coq au vin tonight, I have chicken thighs to cook.

I made the best bbq boneless beef ribs in the crock pot Friday night, yum. Then used the leftover sauce to put on grilled pork chops the next night.
